Kent Protection Against Medicaid Recovery Attorney
An Elder Law attorney’s work is not over after helping a client qualify for Medicaid benefits. Upon death, Medicaid recipients must reimburse the state for the money they received during their lifetime from any assets owned by the Medicaid recipient, including the Medicaid recipient’s interest in their home. However, there are steps that can counter those collection actions.
